Question for the techies


Can it do the job? Is it a bit of an overkill? Would it be robbed?


Make sure the Video is MP4 and you should be ok


Sorry for repeating myself, but what about the loop play on the TV?


Ok so, looks like I need a smart TV with “auto play” and “repeat play” functions from USB. Hard enough to find that in the specs though.

Just watched that there a few mins ago, thanks…


You can buy specific Tv’s for the job. All the major brands do them. Search for "Tv’s signage "

These devices, which pervade all aspects of peoples’ lives, are also capable of monitoring their every word and action.

Yes,have one for a year or so, without doubt the finest- no comparison


That’s cheap - instead of buying ould shite every year - it’s without doubt the best android box available
